    I was expecting my EE's to lay last because they are a week younger than my BA's and two weeks younger than my Del who has been laying for 2 weeks. I knew someone was going to start laying because I found a softshell egg on the poop board yesterday morning. Never would have guessed it was from one of my EE girls. Theis combs aren't even really red or developed. But I just had to share a picture with someone! So here it is next to a store bought egg and an egg from my Del. I am shocked at how dark it is.

    what a gorgeous color!



    one of my EE hens was the first to lay out of all my 19 hens (!!) and her egg was a pale blue color - green is my favorite color, so i'm hoping one of the other EE girls will lay some eggs like yours for us!
